Garret Neal Bryant
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1801
North Carolina, USA
Death: 1892
Claiborne County
Tennessee, USA


Garrett Neal Bryant was born about 1801 in North Carolina. His parents are unknown but the 1880 US Census says that his father was born in North Carolina and his mother in Virginia.

About 1825 Garrett married Sarah "Sally" Stanton (1808- aft 1870). Born in North Carolina, her parents are currently unknown.

Garret and Sally married in North Carolina but by the late 1820s had migrated to Greene Co., TN. By 1840, possibly as early as 1834, they had migrated to Claiborne Co., TN. The censuses for 1850, 1860 and 1870 all show Garrett, Sally and their children living in Claiborne County.

Garrett and Sally were married for at least 45 years and had nine known children. In order of their birth they were Mary Bryant (1826-1865), Rebecca Elizabeth Bryant (1830-1895), Bixy Bryant (1832- ?), Lawson Bryant (1834-aft 1880), Matilda Hale "Tildy" Bryant (1837-1891), Octavia L. Bryant (1840-1886), Sonville Powell Bryant (1843-1915), James Bryant (1846- ?) and Orlena Bryant (1849- ?). Their first child, Mary, was born in North Carolina. The rest were all born in Tennessee.

The 1880 US Census shows Garrett, age 79, as "divorced" with two of his daughters, Octavia (25) and Orlena (21), living with him in Claiborne Co, TN. It is quite possible that his wife, Sally, had died and that Garret had divorced from a currently unknown second wife.

Garrett does not appear in the 1900 census but he does appear as an eligible voter in Claiborne County in 1891. He is thought to have died about 1892 in Claiborne County and buried in the Scott Cemetery, established in 1870. His grave site is one of several early burials that are now unmarked in that cemetery. The earliest burial site with a readable marker is 1884.
